, that the worst is over, if he can convey that effectively. governor romney needs to continue to persuade voters that obama has had his four years, it's time for new leadership. they're both making that case and it's really about getting those voters who have made up their minds or who are really close to voting for one or the other out to the polls. >> what about the undecideds? we keep hearing about the undecide undecideds? is there a particular populace there in ohio? >> it's about 1%. >> so the northern part of that state is one that would traditionally vote more republican. it seems as though according to some of your polling and some of the articles that that is the portion of the state that is leaning toward romney. but that's also the portion of the state that's heavy on manufacturing of ships and cars, especially since obama has been getting a lot of credit for helping to save the u.s. auto industry. that doesn't seem to make sense. >> right. well, actually, the northern part, especially the northeastern part is traditionally democratic. the northwestern part has been democratic, but if

do you think president obama will be able to campaign? will he be able to campaign, and what do you think about governor romney? let's listen to the audio of david axelrod answering that question. >> i'm not going to tell governor romney what to do and, frankly, i don't think he is going to ask for my opinion either, but as far as the president goes, he has real responsibilities, and he, you know -- those responsibilities come first, and, you know, he is in constant contact with craig fugate, janet napolitano and all those with responsibility here and is going to monitor this. obviously, it's a very, very concerning situation. you know, in temz of the logistics, you know, we're obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time, but that's as it has to be, and we'll try and make it up on the back end. so for us it's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of responsibility, and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> and there you have david axelrod, chief strategist for president obama just a short time ago explaining how the obama campaign will spend their focus

obama -- he talked about fees that the governor put in place, while he was in charge of the state. here is what the president said. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher fees for milk. there were higher fees for blind people who needed to get a certificate that they were blind. he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: so that is a line, fred, that got some laughter here from his crowd of supporters, was not well received. no surprise, by the romney campaign. a spokesperson calling the attack laughable, saying "as governor mitt romney worked with democrats to close a 3 billion deficit, balanced budget by cutting taxes three times, lowered the massachusetts unemployment rate to 4.7%." this is going to be a really tough race here, fred, and you can tell by how many times the president has visited. two times in two weeks. and we're expecting vice president joe biden, barring the storm affecting his schedule to be here on monday. >> and then from new hampshire, the president is on to quite a few other battleground states,
